This hall table with a live edge top was made from local Oregon maple, cherry & yew. The bottom drawers were the 2nd attempt at hand cut half blind dovetails, and it was quite the challenge. Finished with blo & several coats of shellac.

Those are some tiny pins on your dovetails. Very nice.

Great table. Unusual design and well done joinery. I believe you’re up for any challenge now.

That’s a great combination of contemporary design with a Nakashima kind of rough, natural feel…simply put, it’s a fine table.

Wow, thanks for all the great feedback.
A funny story on this one (at least to me) was that the original slab on top was a bit longer on the narrower side – when I posted this as a work-in-progress to my blog it was pointed out that it looked as if I was making an ironing board.
Just the fact that no one alluded to that was awesome, and of course the other comments are much appreciated. Thanks!
